NextFest is pleased to share the Call for Visual Art Submissions from emerging artists. For the purpose of this call, “emerging” refers to any artist in the first 10 years of their practice who is not professionally represented.

This year, the festival will take place both online and in person with some gallery exhibits throughout the city.

The festival runs from June 3-13 and the visual arts submission deadline is April 5.
